The latest in Pratchett's Discworld series plays a variation on the Faust theme. Eric is a singularly inept sorcerer who conjures up an even more inept wizard, Rincewind, and a sentient (also treacherous, vindictive, and unruly) footlocker named, of course, the Luggage. Not having got anything like what he bargained for, Eric is fated to go through the usual zany ordeals of a Pratchett protagonist, until he wishes he'd never been born. Nor do things really all work out in the end, even if Eric is better off than he expected to be through most of the book. The Discworld books are building a following that is beginning to resemble that of Piers Anthony's Xanth stories, although it can be said that Pratchett is rather more sophisticated than Anthony. In any case, there should be a lot of readers for this one. Fantasy collections, provide accordingly. Roland Green --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I think this is my favorite book of the Discworld series so far. It reminded me somewhat of my absolute favorite coauthored by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens. Read morePublished 15 days ago by The fat cat
Great read. Couldn't put it down. Read it in 2days. Love Terry Pratchett's books.Published 21 days ago by Catherine Geissler
I do love Rincewind's consistent incompetence. Eric, although the title character, isn't actually our hero. Om love Terry Pratchett for his wit and follow through on puns.Published 1 month ago by A. Gift For You
Terry Pratchett is hilarious. I am not one to usually laugh out loud, especially not when reading, but the Discworld series of books is really funny.Published 1 month ago by FM
It is Pratchett and he always writes well, the problem is that it's too short, more could have been done with it and the wossname Parrot isn't that funny, just annoying. Read morePublished 2 months ago by L. King

This book is a joy to read, as are all of Terry Pratchett's works. My one complaint is that it's quite short, but it's a great read if you want to start and finish something.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
